Beginning the License Application Process
Each municipal jurisdiction (cities and counties) within Florida may have their own specific liquor license regulations and requirements which may necessitate additional applications being filed within the municipality having jurisdiction over your intended location. As you begin the application process, you’ll need several forms of documentation to obtain a liquor license. These forms are consistent on the state level, so they will work for each county that you are seeking to operate. Before starting an application, make sure you have the following pieces of documentation:
- Municipal zoning approval
- Personal information for all principals including Social Security number, phone numbers, and addresses
- Any criminal records
- Right of Occupancy
- Contracts for management
- Sketch of floor plan for the establishment
- Sales and Use tax registration from the Florida Department of Revenue
- Document registration number from the state of Florida
- Federal employer’s identification number
